Hi fellow modelers and flyers originally at the start of this build it was my intention to build k3731 but as one does I changed my mind and changed it to K5682 ( which has Cambridge Blue markings ) Cambridge Blue is so varied in hue I settled for the nearest I could well there was no way I could achieve true scale. I made my own transfers and logo. This plane K5682 was assigned to RAF Cranwell as a trainer aircraft and during it,s time there it was damaged beyond repair and scrapped it has not been easy tracking down info but I am doing my best. I have never done any rigging before but have nearly completed the tail end just need some more ali tubing. I destroyed a leather bum bag for the fine leather using it for the cockpit combing and cable patches. I have also deviated from the dummy 22swg wire for the elevator cables and have used plastic coated wire which has shearing elastic attaching the wire to the rear of the cockpit this is having the effect of keeping the wire under tension and also acts as a damper , the plan called for 22swg wire to slide into ali tubing buried in the tailplane. I have used the brass parts intended for the windscreen to make litho frames and made a 3 part glass shield from thick Perspex it looks ok I think that's about it next is the wing rigging goodness knows how long that will take. anyway some pics below








poor pic but it is the handholds out of leather since found out they used some form of cord which I will add

Thread: Prostate Cancer

It can be difficult sometimes John it,s normal to be like that and strangely enough our brains seem to latch on to cancer information stories I know I think are they doing this on purpose to spook me and having an underlying feeling of anger after all even if it's not aggressive you know it's there and it doesn't belong , it's a journey with a potentially positive outcome. Take care John

As far as I know all Ali drinks cans have a micro layer of plastic to prevent leaching and corrosion
